Wife sounded pretty excited over the phone. "Guess what?". I can hardly wait to find out. "Can you believe it? Hummingbird Bakery has opened up a store in Spitalfields!". Well, I can't blame her really. Ever since we chanced upon the Hummingbird Bakery at Notting Hill's Portobello Market, she has fell head over heels for its cupcakes.
Hummingbird Bakery branch at Soho
Then another branch opened up along Soho's Wardour Street, right opposite Inamo. We spent quite a bit of time just standing outside gawking at the display and would probably join the queue if not for the heavy meal at Inamo.
And now Hummingbird Bakery's newest branch at Spitalfields' Frying Pan Alley (don't you just love London's street names - I can imagine flipping pancakes along the alley during Shrove Tuesday). Wife brought back a couple the very same day. As she laid the cupcakes on the dining table, she was telling me of another lady just behind her ordering more than twenty "for her workmates". Looks like a sugar rush is exactly what city workers need. One thing's for sure though - diets will be ruin, happily I suspect.

Hummingbird Bakery Spitalfields Market - cupcakes to die for
